Notes:
  1. The payasam gets thickened as it cools down, so ensure to add enough water while cooking.
  2. In the original recipe my friend told to add more moong dal and less sago. But since we all love sago pearls i added equally. 
  3. If you want to add milk to the payasam, add 1/2 cup once the payasam in completely cool.
  4. I used the gula melaka available in fairprice shops instead of jaggery. For my readers in Singapore you can try this out.
